Factors that may force you to change your moving date

  • Extreme weather conditions: Rapid changes in the weather may cause you to change your moving date. In case the region you would like to travel to is experiencing heavy storms and blizzards, you would have to reschedule your moving date. Such situations also affect auto shipping, especially in countries where you should receive your car at the port.
  • Changes in laws: Different states and countries are governed by set rules and regulations. In some cases, a country may opt to limit the entry of some citizens of a given country, pets or certain products and you may therefore have to change your travel plans.
  • Airline regulations: Airline regulations are strict and should be adhered to so as to ensure there will be a high level of safety. Airlines have the right to deny admission of pets on board, depending on the circumstances. In case, there is an item that will be brought on board which will potentially cause your pet to be restless, you may have to change your moving date so as to get a more suitable way of shipping your pet. Flying with pets requires you to look into a number of factors and you may have to consider hiring the services of pet movers so as to avoid last minute disappointments.
  • Flight delays: In most cases, flight delays are caused by factors that are beyond human control. Therefore, you will have to be a bit patient and then wait to schedule your travel plans to the date communicated by your airline.
  • Personal changes in plans: You might have a family emergency that requires to be attended to immediately. In the unfortunate event that a member of your family falls ill, you would have to attend to them. Should it be a condition that requires close medical check-ups over a period that extends to your moving date, you would have to change your moving date.

A long distance move entails a lot of planning and decision making. However, have you also considered the fact that anything can happen in-between that may cause you to change your moving date?  Be prepared for unseen hindrances and have a fall-back plan in place. In case you were to use the services of a hauler, notify them about the change of plans. This will enable you to have a less anxious and stressful time.
